Anyone happen to look into using this with d2's?

I wonder if they will fit the coilovers and i can reach through the rear side carpet pieces

The only issue is how to buy them >.<


If these fit, that means that people can use the TEIN EDFC PRO and ACTIVE damping controllers. as they will connect the same way.  I'm not interested in the electronic controllers, but others might be.

BC makes something similar, and I think other brands do as well. Something has to be close enough to work with the D2s.

Apparently D2 makes these and it's not published anywhere!  I just ordered some direct from D2 for 15$ each.  The extensions d2 sells come in 350mm length only which should be long enough to route from behind the side panels.

Awesome! Got a part number or link? Did you have to call or e-mail them to order?

Wilwood makes universal rear calipers with integrated handbrake too.

Do you have a partnumber?  I only see the separate caliper from them for the e-brake

There are three of them; two actually have the same piston diameter as the Starquest rear caliper: https://www.wilwood....ination P-Brake

I am running wildwood calipers front and rear on the Miata but the rear e brake is lacking. Have the cable tightened almost all the way and it barely holds the car on a big slope. really they just clamp the pads together with a spring system and not really through the caliper pistons.

Oh, that's lame. Didn't know that.

I just got the D2 extensions... Not as I expected.  They don't look as well made as any other company very short sheathing and very long cable exposed.  I don't see any way to secure this cable to the strut other than epoxy or something.  Other vendors have full sheathing and a gland at the end with a set screw to secure to the body.

Posted Image D2's version.


I've got a ping out to D2 about this.  Waiting response.


Also maybe to note, I've got the D2 Aircup Kit that came in as well.  Cheaper to install this than make my driveway approach reasonable for anything other than an SUV.

Update: D2 did not think it was necessary to secure to the coilover top.  They recommended just "friction fit", glue, or for me to invent a solution.  I'm ordering a set from another vendor.



If these fit the "legion elite" coilovers I have and am planning to put in the other car, I'll tack them on somehow.

I could probably adjust mine tighter but I didn't want to stress the cables that bad. I keep a wheel chock in the trunk in case I end up on some insane hill or slope. But for drifting I'd need to use a hydraulic setup if I wanted to rely on E brake drifting. Instead I just rely on the cars power and properly shifting it's weight around
